Syncordia Technologies and Healthcare Solutions, Corp. Reports Notice of Termination of Customer Contracts

TORONTO, Sept. 2, 2015 /CNW/ - Syncordia Technologies and Healthcare Solutions, Corp. (TSXV: SYN) ("Syncordia" or the "Company") reported that on September 1, 2015 the Company received notice of termination from Air Medical Group Holdings, Inc. ("AMGH") of the customer contracts of two AMGH entities, REACH Air Medical Holdings ("Reach") and Summit Air Ambulance, LLC ("Summit"), with Health Services Integration, Inc. ("HSI"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. 

Pursuant to the notice, HSI will continue to process new claims until November 30, 2015, after which HSI will only process the billing and collection of then-existing claims until May 30, 2016.

Syncordia acquired HSI effective October 31, 2014. For the three month period ended June 30, 2015, aggregate revenue from Reach and Summit was $1,365,327. This revenue is reported by Syncordia within the Company's RCM segment.

While this loss will begin to impact revenue in calendar year 2016, management believes that a combination of newly signed contracts, additional near term contract wins, and current lean initiatives will offset the loss of the Reach and Summit contracts and management's profits expectations have not changed. As at June 30, 2015, the Company had $10,286,259 of cash and cash equivalents.
